At the bank, he advised on Asset backed securitisations including the Kaiserplatz-Conduits and the Residence transactions arranged by Commerzbank. In addition the team will be further boosted by the arrival of partner Stuart Thomas from the London office who will be concentrating on project and acquisition finance.
